Are my plants to tall and skinny for Day 28? I've been told on Reddit that my light's are prob dead by the looks of my plants (tall, with skinny stems that stretch up and they won't yield much due to this. Is there anything I can do? I have 1*800w LED , 2 X HPS 150W Bulbs
Thanks

Yeah they are stretching for the light absolutely. If you put the light closer they will be very thankful - but how close? As close as you can while 1- still covering the canopy and 2- not burning the plants. How can you tell if its burning the plants you ask? Simple - use your hand, if its to hot for you after 30 seconds its to hot for them! As long as you aren't burning them and you are covering the whole canopy you are good to move it closer! :sunglasses:

nah man reddit aint all that, you're actually pretty good, it's probably alright having a 13 inch plant after a month. a bigger plant has more internodal space for bud anyway right ? the main idea is that you want your LEDs much lower like around 14 inches from the canopy of your plant, and your HIDs around 24 inches from the canopy of your plant. Even a one inch difference means that the plant will get a lot less light, so you want to keep that dialled in. Pretty much as simple as that homie, more light the plant gets the less it stretches towards the light. does that make sense ? hope this helps ! :rocket:

They are kind of stretchy, why? because your lights are too far and the plants are trying to get closer to the light, I mean 95 cm plant to light distance? That's way too far away. Try putting them closer to the light and the node spacing will be shorter, somewhere between 30 cm (12 inches) and 60 cm (24 inches), maybe 45 cm (18 inches) and see how they like it.
